Research Interests

My current work focuses on technical support for ultra high eld MR research and on pulse sequence

and reconstruction development for chemical exchange saturation transfer and spectroscopy. My

previous research focused on developing new techniques to scan and reconstruct multidimensional

magnetic resonance spectroscopic images from undersampled data.
